Hello!

I have a package of cable, phone, internet that currently is not wireless. Can I buy a wireless router from a store like Walmart and just hook up the wires - trade wires with current setup from package company? Or do I have to go through the company and pay a monthly fee? Even if I get that router, do I need an aircard for a laptop or any other PC not hooked with wires?

I do not know too much about wireless.

Thanks,
Jim

Yes you can. Just remember simply buying a wireless router doesn't give you wireless. You also need a wireless card in the PC. Most newer(last 3-4 years) laptops should have wireless cards built in.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
